With Wallace being a "one trick pony", does this mean the steelers are comfortable with someone else handling those routes. Someone like Sanders. Or maybe even a Rookie or two... I mean, how difficult was Wallaces' route tree? Really?
Appears to be a good deal for Brown. Wallace shouldn't take this deal personally.
[QUOTE=RuthlessBurgher;517011]Wait...just noted that it is a 5 year extension (in addition to this one already), so we've got him locked up for 6 seasons. If the cap hit is distributed over 6 years rather than 5, that would make his cap hit for this year $1.95 million.[/QUOTE]
i was thinking the same thing.
at first i thought 5 for 42(8mill per year) seemed alot more than he should have been offered. realizing it is 6 for 42(7 mill per year) makes it a liitle better.
pretty big gamble on the steelers part giving him this much for his production. hope it isnt a knee jerk, vindictive move to spite wallace. i mean i like the vindictive part, not how much they gave brown.
all and all, glad its done. good work both sides for playing it cool
That's my question too, what is Wallace asking for ? Also, and because he just signed but, I see a new Steeler leader in Brown. I believe he will be one of the faces of the team someday like Hines, Bettis, Troy, etc of players that, when you think of one you think of the other. I think Brown will be better than Hines some day.
Congrats Mr. Brown..... you earned it
Jason la confora is reporting that browns base salary this year will be 540k helping save space for 2012.
john Clayton tweeted that we would "try to get Wallace for more than 9 million per year" think he meant less than
Dudes always smiling
Probably smiling a lot more now
That's definitely going to make it easier for him to take care of his kids!

Personally I think Wallace should take this deal:D
Keep quiet and work hard and generally good things will happen. We just signed the more complete receiver. I'm stoked

Thought it was interesting how fast Wallace congratulated Brown on Twitter. I don't think he holds any grudge, and I don't think it's going to get drawn out for several weeks. Wallace will sign soon.
